The Best of PT Toolkit Resources – Home Modifications and Aging in Place

by Cheryl Hall on July 3rd, 2016

Best-of-OTSince the majority of my career was spent in Home Health, the topic of Aging in Place and Home Modifications is one that is near and dear to my heart.  I have compiled some of the most useful resources that I have posted over the last couple of years in one handy article.

The Physical Therapy Toolkit includes a treatment guide on Home Safety and Modification and a Home Safety Assessment.
